A Look at The History of HTC Worldwide Android

HTC It is a relatively modern brand, founded in 1997 in Taiwan, and one of which stronger bet on the Android world. It emerged very successful such as Magic, Legend or Desire terminals, and the new HTC One is his latest creation. You like to know how they have evolved over all these years? We then review iconic HTC phones on the Android world.

HTC Magic, the beginning

We go back to the year 2009. HTC had already put on the market the Dream, considered the first commercial phone with Android and distributed in Spain with Movistar. But she was not the HTC Magic which garnered great success and critical acclaim.

HTC Magic started his career with Android 1.5 and ended with the 2.1. Its screen was tiny compared to what we are accustomed to seeing today, since it had 3.2 inches and a resolution of 480 x 320 pixels, camera 3.2 megapixel and 288 MB of RAM memory (although the first version had only 192 MB). A phone that HTC was unveiled in the world of mobile telephony.

HTC Desire, the beginning of a brand

Magic was important and obtained very good sales, but if there is an important phone for HTC that is without a doubt the HTC Desire. He arrived in April 2010 directly with Android 2.1, larger 3.7 screen inches (then this size was huge) and five megapixel camera. The processor was a Qualcomm 1 GHz. and RAM memory stood at 576 MB.

HTC Desire It was an excellent terminal, but their success would not have been the same if not because Google is put in the middle. The company of the famous search engine used the same hardware to build the Nexus One, the first “Google” phone that has catapulted the brand ‘Nexus’ as one of the best options when choosing an Android terminal.

After the original model of Desire, HTC also put multitude of devices with the same brand in the market. Desire HD, Desire Z, Desire S or the more modern X Desire which we analyze here are just a few examples. The brand was initially positioned as high-end and finished with input terminals and mid-range today in day continue selling out and, in some cases, being good choices on the market.

HTC WildFire, small but Warrior

With Desire in the market monopolizing the high ranges, HTC saw the need to create another brand covering phones more simple and affordable in its catalogue. Thus, a few months later was born HTC Wildfire, a first small model (3.2 inches) and with some really simple specifications compared to the offered by Desire. It was the range of input, a terminal designed for those users who were looking for a mobile cheap.

WildFire and Nexus One

And that was precisely the reason why HTC Wildfire He had some success in sales. In Spain was the phone operators “gave away” with the signing of a contract, which attracted many. Almost a year later arose to its evolution, HTC Wildfire S with the same idea of being a simple and input terminal but a hardware significantly better.

HTC sensation

HTC began with G1, Magic and Hero and was slowly increasing the number of members of his family. Desire, Wildfire and Incredible are just some of them. If we now move to the year 2011, specifically to the month of may, we will see another of the major brands of Taiwanese: HTC Sensation, a terminal that on this occasion again to attack the market in its highest range with characteristics which highlighted screen, 4.3 inches and resolution of 960 x 540 pixels. By then most terminals moved in 800 x 480 or even lower.

HTC Sensation came with Android 2.3 and it has even be updated to Ice Cream Sandwich, all thanks to the processor dual core 1.2 GHz. (one of the first mobile phone with dual-core CPU) and its 768 MB of RAM. After the first model, at the end of the same 2011 arrived developments known as Sensation XE and, above all, HTC Sensation XL, which increased the size of the screen until the 4.7 inch although, interestingly, significantly reduced resolution.

The One family

We are entering the final straight with the HTC One family presented last year 2012. Three terminals which resulted in a change of course for the company, with very different designs with respect to what we have seen and presenting three terminals at the same time to copy all users: One V, One S and the flagship, One X (which was subsequently relaunched as One X +).

This first generation of phones HTC One It garnered critical acclaim among the public but failed to gain good sales, something which is confirmed by the results prosecutors of HTC for 2012. This is why they have tried to rethink their strategy with another phone, presented these days.

The HTC One, its new flagship

After the family One, HTC inherits the name of them and presents the HTC One. A unique terminal of high-end, is among the most expensive on the market and with a pointer and powerful hardware.

Again a change of course. HTC improves almost all the features of their previous phones (Qualcomm 600 quad-core, 2 GB RAM, FullHD screen) and above all, designed a terminal that, for many, is the most attractive thing that exist, based on an aluminium body. It also introduces important innovations in your camera, new programmes, such as Blinkfeed and the evolution of its Sense layer.

It is clear that HTC One It won’t be the only new HTC terminal by 2013, and we hope new phones in the coming months. What is certain is that it is another change of course, another development more in design and features that will try to fight for the throne in the mobile telephony market.
